I started from Delhi on the evening of one Thursday in the month of June. I presumed the weather is great for trekking since the rains haven’t yet begun and winter is far away. I reached Shimla at 5 am in the morning and was greeted by an almost sunny morning and chilly winds. After a hasty breakfast of tea, biscuits and bread omelet at the bus stand, I made my way to Khada Pathar. First, it was a nightmare to find a bus that would take me there and secondly the locals were immensely helpful in figuring things out for this lost ‘Dilli waali ladki’.Finally I set off for another 4 hours of travelling. The roads were horrible and it was a good thing that my breakfast weren’t the yummy aloo paranthas I almost ate. The ride is topsy turvy and you would know exactly how Donkey from Shrek feels! I must have asked “are we there yet?” at least 8 times.I finally reached Khada Pathar just after noon and surprisingly was hungry even though my stomach hadn’t fully recovered from the journey. I stuck to dal and rice from one of the many dhabas there and after asking around started my trek to Kuppar Top!
